The Pad Thai Shop

The Pad Thai Shop in Karon Beach

The Pad Thai Shop is a tiny restaurant on the side of the back road of Karon Beach. It’s so small and modest; you would drive past it without paying much attention if it wasn’t for its growing reputation and a large yellow signboard that says ‘The Pad Thai Shop’. Despite its success, the shop owner probably chose not to change anything about the shop. Bare wood and brick walls, concrete roof, plastic chairs and plates and a bare black stove as old local shops usually are.
